Children’s Miracle Network – Meet the Kids: Trevis
When you open your heart to Children's Miracle Network, you help local kids here in Shreveport-Bossier. Like Trevis.
Trevis was truck by a car on June 5, 2011 at the age of 15 while riding his bike down the street. He spent more than a year in a coma.
He began therapy at Kids Clinic in October of 2012.
On day one of therapy it was noted that Trevis had occasional opening of the eyes when you spoke to him but otherwise did not respond. Today Trevis helps get himself up, rolls, tracks with his eyes, smiles, and of course gives high fives.
Your donation will go to programs at Christus Health Shreveport-Bossier that are funded by Children's Miracle Network to help kids like Trevis.
“Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has raised more than $5 billion—most of it $1 at a time—for 170 children’s hospitals across the United States and Canada, which, in turn, use the money where it’s needed the most. These donations have gone to support research and training, purchase equipment, and pay for uncompensated care, all to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.
Our mission: We increase funds and awareness for local children’s hospitals.
Our vision: Together we save kids’ lives.
Right now there’s a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital working to save the lives of kids in your community. In fact, 62 children enter a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital for treatment every minute — that’s one child every second. Some are battling cancer. Some are suffering from a traumatic injury. Others require constant care because they were born too early, or with a genetic disease. Regardless of why the kids are there, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals always have their doors open.”
